Music Director: Santhosh Narayanan
The plot begins where Rhythm (Keerthy Suresh), narrates the tale of a penguin and its children to her son Ajay. When the story of the penguin pauses, the life story of Rhythm begins. This movie revolves around the psychological battle of Rhythm when her son Ajay is kidnapped all of a sudden. So what happened to Ajay? Who was behind the kidnap? And what happened to her life thereafter, deals with the rest of the story.
It is obvious that this film has adapted a lot of scenes from Raatsasan.
And like other thriller movies, we were able to guess the antagonist but that was not a cakewalk though. The plot and the screenplay made it quite hard to predict the flow of the story.
As far as cast and crew work is concerned, everybody did a perfect joboverall. The Director kept no stones unturned in bringing out their performances. The protagonist Rhythm made us emotionally attached to the movie.
The background score is awesome and there are not unnecessary songs which divert the plot. The only song featured in the movie made sense though. Santhosh Narayanan deserves all praise.
Music is the main backbone of this movie.
However, there are many loopholes throughout the story which makes us question the logic in many places. Even though this film had a good plot overall, it failed to bring out an effective result at the end. Especially, the killer’s motive was not at all appealing and the director puts us in a dilemma of choosing the main theme of this movie. He didn’t stick to one particular aspect of the story as its theme which made it quite uneasy for us to come to a conclusion.
So overall, Penguin is a good movie which could have been better in terms of the screenplay and storyflow.
This movie does not live up to the perfect thriller movie that we would expect and is not worth your time.. Do stream it on Amazon Prime if you want to.
